Because we sweat through our heads; permanently putting a cover on that would be a really bad idea.

Ever spent a lot of time around someone with cancer? Wigs wear out before long.

That’s essentially what a hair transplant is, but without the extra cap matrix — the hair plugs get put directly into the skin.

Isn’t that what hairplugs are?

There are hair systems that get glued on your head and they look really good. Google for an old photo of Elon Musk and then a more recent photo. He didn’t regrow his hair.

As far as surgical implantation, that would be a waste. The hair is not alive, it breaks and wears out. You would end up bald again but would have gone through the pain/trouble of surgery instead of spending a couple hours a month at a specialty hair salon.
